    Starting it now. Winters done, the nice weather is arriving. The long hard Covid winter will soon be a distant memory. Hallelujah.

    @Rroff Do you have the same enthusiasm for forecasting summer weather as you do winter?

    There are only two seasons.
    Summer and not summer.

    Right now, it's summer.

    Haven't looked forward to a summer like this year in a long long time!

    What’s the point in a spring thread? No ones interested in average weather, we’re all about the extremes here.

    We’re not happy unless we’re freezing or sweating our knackers off

    Cool, this fits today's weather much better, easterlys sheltered and that sun's elevation making the difference, once the cold blip goes hopefully no plant Frost worry anymore

    We'll be in lockdown 3.0 by then so get used to being inside again.

    We’ve had a few weeks of nice weather here, summer feels like it arrives today as it’s hitting 30 during the day now. Air con season starts now ... :(

    I do 3 seasons tbh. Jan-Apr (mostly Winter), May-Aug (Summer), Sep-Dec (Autumn).

    So Summer is just around the corner. Like with Lysander, I'm not keen on the bright early mornings. Once I wake it I find it hard to get back to sleep. Also, I get more nightmares in the summer, tend to get depressed during these months. I think it's like SAD but inverse-SAD instead. The heat is an issue too, not so much inside my house as I have a/c, but I struggle outside when it approaches 20C or above.
